A Holiday Guide to the Real Greece
If you’re looking for a different kind of Greece holiday – one away from the crowds where you will find authentic tavernas, secluded beaches and a genuine flavour of local life – then you’ve come to the right place. Sunvil’s range of holidays to Greece is about as far from the usual package as you can get – instead, we’re interested in the real country. We carefully select each of the resorts, islands and accommodations that we offer to provide unique holidays to this wonderfully varied, scenically stunning and historic land.
With some 40 years of experience in organising Greek holidays, our travel team is highly knowledgeable about a huge number of resorts and destinations within the country. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly beach holiday, a relaxing painting holiday or a varied multi-centre itinerary , we will guide you to your perfect Greek holiday on the islands or mainland.
We hand-pick all of the accommodation we offer, be it a simple studio or a deluxe hotel, making sure it meets our standards. We love places and accommodation which have retained their traditional Greek flavour – showing an authentic side of Greece. As specialists we concentrate on areas we know and love, and aim to pass on our passion for Greece to you.

Where To Go
Although not a large country (pop. c. 11 million), Greece enjoys the second longest coastline in Europe (after Norway) and offers a range of holiday destinations to suit all tastes, from lively seaside resorts to tranquil mountain villages. If you’re looking for a break on one of the many Greek Islands, why not take a look at our in-depth Greek Island Destinations page?
If you’re planning a trip to Greece’s mainland, we also have a Greece Mainland Destination page. If you’re looking for a fly-drive holiday, perhaps to tour the archaeological sites, take a look at our Hidden Greece section. Multi-centre holidays are easy to arrange as many islands and mainland resorts can be combined, and for more unusual itineraries our tailor-made department can arrange almost any trip you desire.
Why Choose a Greece Holiday?
Greece has long been a favourite holiday destination, and with very good reason. Although boasting 379 Blue Flag beaches, Greece offers far more than sun, sea and sand. No other country can match Greece’s combination of world-shaping history, archaeological sites, unique culture and stunning scenery. A wide range of activities, from active water-sports and sailing to walking and painting, is available to help you make the most of your stay – take a look at some of our Greece Holiday Ideas. And all just over a short 3 hour flight from the UK.
All our holidays have 100% financial protection. All air-inclusive holidays are fully bonded by our ATOL licence (our ATOL number is 808), the only government-backed scheme guaranteeing 100% customer financial protection. There is no extra charge for these guarantees.
